20,000 albums? We can hardly believe it!
Well, it seems like just a few months ago we were celebrating 10,000 albums published on jamendo and this weekend we passed the 20,000 album mark!
Actually, it was 11 months ago to be precise. Look at it this way and you’ll understand why we’re the first to be impressed with the figures: it will have taken jamendo 3 years to gather 10,000 albums, and then just under one year later, that number has doubled!
It’s pretty safe to say we’re going strong. And even safer to say it’s all thanks to you: artists, members and everyone contributing to spread the word of free music!
You can see those 20,000 albums broken down by license at jamendo.com/creativecommons.
Speaking of “we can hardly believe it” and collections of CC licensed media, I recently noticed a post on this blog from 2005:
We’re also happy to see growth at Flickr has gone way beyond our expectations to nearly 1.5 million photos licensed for reuse.
Two months ago Flickr reached 100 million CC licensed photos.
Congratulations to Jamendo and may today’s surprise only hint at an astounding future.Posted 25 May 2009
